    LIANZA WEBINAR - DIGITAL INCLUSION
    Wednesday August 19, 1PM. 

    The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the reliance of New Zealanders on the Internet for work and study, information, and social interaction. LIANZA recently signed on to the Digital Inclusion Five Point Plan, which outlines how the Government could build on recent digital inclusion. Join Philip Miles, who will talk about the journey Auckland Libraries is making towards digital inclusion as a starting point for a group discussion. What is your library doing, or planning, to work towards recommendations made by the Digital Inclusion Blueprint? This webinar is an open discussion to hear what initiatives are underway, brainstorm ways to work collaboratively with LIS colleagues and share information and knowledge across the sector to remove barriers to digital inclusion in New Zealand libraries.

    LIANZA STANDING COMMITTEE ON COPYRIGHT WEBINAR - COPYRIGHT FOR SCHOOL LIBRARIANS
    Monday September 7 + 14, 3.30PM

    • Worried about what you can post on your school’s course management system? 
    •  Confused about showing films? 
    •  Want to play music as part of your library storytimes? 

    This two-part online workshop will take you beyond the basics of copyright and into the weeds of the educational exceptions. This workshop will leave you with the tools you need to understand what the Copyright Act says, how that intersects with your daily programming and lessons, and where the grey areas are. We’ll work through real life scenarios that you and your colleagues face every day to support you as you work towards becoming the go-to person for copyright questions in your school. 

     If you’ve already been to a copyright basics workshop and you’re ready to level up, join Kim Gutchlag and Mandy Henk on 7 September and 14 September at 3:30pm.

    Register here and we’ll send you both the link to attend and to the prerequisite copyright basics webinar.

    LIANZA WEBINAR - WHAT IS WAI 262?
    Wednesday September 30, 1PM. 

    LIANZA are delighted that Trevor Himona, Principal Advisor at Archives New Zealand Te Rua Mahara o te Kāwanatanga, is presenting this webinar (wānanga-workshop) on Wai 262 Te Pae Tāwhiti.

    What is Wai 262? It was the Waitangi Tribunal’s first “whole of government” inquiry, examining the policy areas of more than 20 government agencies and to directly consider what the Treaty relationship should look like after the settlement of historical claims. 

    Why is it important? Successfully resolving Wai 262 issues will strengthen the Māori-Crown relationship and national identity. Strengthening Māori cultural and identity, it will also unlock opportunities for greater economic, social and cultural development as well as supporting the public service reform.

    This Wānanga Workshop will raise your understanding of Wai 262 issues and fits into a series of workshops – this, the first, sets the scene from a Te Ao Māori lens and tests staff knowledge; the second will look at the Tribunal’s findings regarding Wai 262 and our cultural institutions; the third will seek to develop an organisational response to this Wai 262.

    Prior to attending please watch this Wai 262 documentary for a Te Ao Māori insight into Wai 262: https://www.nzonscreen.com/title/wai-262
